A legend visits school

On Thursday, Jane Goodall (yes, that Jane Goodall) spoke in an assembly at the girls' school in Escazú, which is involved in conservation efforts through the Jane Goodall Institute.

She came onto the stage with a wild animal roar that the kids loved and then told fascinating stories about living with the chimpanzees. She finished by emphasizing the importance of the environment and caring for animals. We tried to impress upon the girls that Goodall is one of the most famous scientists of our time, but I think it may be a few years until they realize just how renowned she truly is throughout the world.

I'm so jealous that I didn't get to hear her speak too.

I have really enjoyed your blog so far, and look forward to the continuing Beaudry saga. Sounds Like it's been quite a time already.
